    <p>1. ..........Cruz is a fierce ideologue: He denies the existence of man-made climate change, rejects same-sex marriage, wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, believes the 2nd amendment guarantees everyone a right to guns, doesn’t believe in a constitutional divide between church and state, favors the death penalty, opposes international agreements, embraces a confrontational foreign policy, rejects immigration reform, demands the repeal of “every blessed word of Obamacare,” and takes a strict “originalist” view of the meaning of the Constitution.</p>

    The playbook the pimps of war use to lure us into one military fiasco after another, including Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and now Ukraine, does not change. Freedom and democracy are threatened. Evil must be vanquished. Human rights must be protected. The fate of Europe and NATO, along with a "rules-based international order" is at stake. Victory is assured.The results are also the same. The justifications and narratives are exposed as lies. The cheery prognosis is false. Those on whose behalf we are supposedly fighting are as venal as those we are fighting against.The Russian invasion of Ukraine was...
  • Left-Wing Salon: Biden Was ‘Biggest Negative’ for Democrats in Midterms, Would Be ‘Disaster’ in 2024

    The time has come to “move on” from President Joe Biden, according to a recent Salon piece that argues the president served as a “drag” on Democrats during last week’s midterm election and that Democrats won in the midterm elections “despite Biden, not because of him,” adding that a 2024 presidential run by Biden would be a complete “disaster.” The Saturday essay — titled “Biden was a drag on the Democrats in the midterms: He’d be a disaster in 2024” — was penned by frequent Salon contributor Norman Solomon, who founded the Institute for Public Accuracy (IPA), which is reportedly...
  • The Liz Cheney effect: Brian Kemp gets cold feet over testifying against Trump

    Tuesday night, Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming lost the Republican primary by 37 points to Harriet Hageman. Cheney has drawn relentless fire from Donald Trump for being one of two Republicans on the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. Hageman, on the other hand, ran on a platform of advocating Donald Trump's lies about the 2020 election and denouncing efforts to investigate the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. Late Tuesday, Trump gloated about Cheney's loss, posting that "Cheney should be ashamed of herself" for standing up against Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election. The very next day,...

    A man in China is stunned after being quoted a standard price for a haircut and then being told afterwards the price was 12 times higher. Baidu A hair salon in China is under investigation for telling a customer a hair perm and styling cost 398 yuan (S$83) but afterwards charged him 4,776 yuan under a bizarre system whereby they divided his scalp into 12 “sections” with each costing the quoted price for the service. The man, surnamed Liu, went to the Zhenxuan Hair Salon in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, eastern China, last week to have a hair perm and styling. A...

    The GOP has morphed from an “evil insect” into a full-blown “terrorist organization,” according to a recent Salon piece that accused Republicans and Trump supporters of seeking a war against American democracy, encouraging widescale violence against the left and minorities, and using “stochastic terrorism” to achieve their aims. Titled “At last the Republican Party comes clean: It stands for terrorism and Trump, against democracy,” penned by staff writer Chauncey DeVega, the Monday Salon essay begins by labeling the Republican Party an “evil” terror group. “In the year-plus since the events of Jan. 6, 2021, the Republican Party has morphed, like...

    CNN's Jake Tapper is one of the most well-known television journalists in the US. Tapper values truth, transparency, honesty, and kindness, according to interviews. He's naturally skeptical and, to remain neutral, he doesn't vote. Politico says he could be the best current television interviewer in the US. He grew up in a Philadelphia "hippy" household, but one focused on what was right and wrong. After three years he left Washington City Paper to become the Washington Correspondent for Salon. His editor at the time Joan Walsh said it was clear that he wasn't ideologically driven. Tapper's wife says her husband...

    According to a recent article by the left-wing Salon, multiple former employees of Luntz have come forward to raise ethical questions about Luntz’s business, which focuses on public policy polling and focus groups to inform politicians and political parties as well as Fox News, MSNBC, and CNBC. Accusations range from Luntz’s operation being a “scam” that violates codes of ethics to Luntz’s business being “bullsh^t”. Salon spoke extensively to Chris Ingram, a former senior vice president at the Luntz Research Company during the late 1990s and early 2000s, who told the publication that “Luntz’s claim to deliver objective data is...

    There’s a moral and ethical case to be made for abortion, according to two experts writing for Salon.Earlier this month, Salon published a piece examining “Why the case against abortion is weak, ethically speaking.” Nathan Nobis, an associate professor of philosophy at Morehouse College, and Jonathan Dudley, a postdoctoral fellow in molecular genetic pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, argued that abortion supporters should employ ethics to undercut the pro-life position. They went so far as to propose a few “ethical arguments” of their own – arguments rife with fallacies.That’s because the pro-life stance is a solid one: Life is precious,...

    A Salon essay published on Friday accuses Republicans of resembling “good Germans” of the Nazi era — wishing to believe they are decent people while hiding behind “fictions of plausible deniability for the evils committed by their leader” — and describes today’s conservatism as seeking “friendly fascism” masked in an appeal to return to “traditional values.” The essay, penned by staff writer Chauncey Devega and titled “Conservatives are the new ‘good Germans,’ enabling and defending Trump’s crimes,” begins by claiming “Whatever ‘conservative’ once meant in American politics, it’s now just a flimsy rhetorical shield for fascism.” Devega continues by declaring...

    Democrats and their media allies are milking a tragic riot for all it's worth.The Democrats and their media allies are trying to convince the American people that President Donald Trump is guilty of inciting an insurrection last week. In both legal terms and in terms of the plain meaning of the English language, their claim is absurd on its face. There are two fundamental reasons for this: Trump did not incite the riots at the Capitol, and the riots were not an insurrection.The Standard for IncitementLegally speaking, incitement has an incredibly high bar that none of Trump’s actions since the...

    Remember her? Back in May, Dallas area hair salon owner Shelley Luther became the face of pandemic lockdown oppression when she actually went to jail for daring to operate her small business against executive orders from the state. Luther, who needed to work in order to feed her family and pay her employees, continued to operate while maintaining mask-wearing rules, increasing sanitation standards, and social distancing when possible. But to the judge in that case, Luther was in contempt of executive orders and needed to be made an example of. Luther gained celebrity when a video of her in court...

(FOX26) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has been advocating for strict coronavirus protection measures is now having to defend herself against is accusations of hypocrisy. Security camera footage shows her with her mask down, getting a haircut and style at a salon in San Francisco before salons there were allowed to open. The owner of that salon in San Francisco is from Fresno, and leased a space at a hair salon in Fresno until about 6 months ago. Governor Newsom said last week that salons could...

    A hair salon says it was told by a job center it couldn't run an advertisement recruiting a “happy” stylist because the word is “discriminatory” against unhappy people. Alison Birch listed a job ad looking for a part-time qualified hairdresser at her AJ's Unisex Hair Salon in Stroud, England,. The position called for someone with five years’ experience of working in a salon, who is "confident in barbering as well as all aspects of hairdressing.” And the advertisement stated, "This is a busy, friendly, small salon, so only happy, friendly stylists need apply." But on Wednesday, Birch says she received...

Erica Kious, owner of eSalon, on Monday released a video of Pelosi walking around her business bare-faced, sparking charges of hypocrisy in light of the lawmaker’s frequent calls to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. Kious has said she rents out chairs to independent stylists and claimed she did not leak the video for “political” reasons

    San Francisco Mayor London Breed attempted to redirect fire at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi toward the president after security footage showed Pelosi getting her hair done with no mask inside a salon. The video showed Pelosi inside the hair salon, which is currently not permitted in California. Salons have been closed since March, with state restrictions only allowing outdoor appointments beginning in September. Pelosi claims that she was "set up" by the salon owner and blamed the owner for giving false information about state restrictions. The Democrat mayor backed up Pelosi and dismissed the notion that the Speaker was violating...

    Nancy Pelosi will never live this one down. The Democratic House speaker was captured on security footage -- leaked to Fox News -- inside a San Francisco hair salon not wearing a mask, even though the city's Covid-19 restrictions only allow service outside. Cue a gleeful eruption from conservative media and from President Donald Trump himself, who slammed her for not wearing a mask "despite constantly lecturing everyone else." Pelosi comes across as a hypocrite, since she has frequently rebuked Trump for undermining government advice on masks. Her office's excuse that her face was uncovered only when she got her...

    I realize, it was Biden himself that said that one isn't black if one votes for Trump. But we all know, the idea's root is at AOC, Omar/Tlaib types. Recently, after the Beirut explosion, and Arab Lebanese began criticizing the armed Hezbollah, an Amerucan radical left called these Arabs "sellouts". His name is Ben Norton.
